Abstract: A Most urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by bacteria that inhabit the intestinal tract as normal flora. Escherichia coli being one of the predominant inhabitants of the bowel have often been queried to cause of vast majority of the UTIs especially among women. Mid -stream clean catch technique was adopted in the collection of 500 urine specimens which were analyzed using standard method of urine culture technique. The result obtained showed that of 500 urine specimens examined, 195 (39%) were infected mostly with E coli. Of these number, 162(83.1%) had a total of E coli bacteriuria count ranging from 1.28x105to 1.67x105cfu/ml. Other bacteria isolates encountered include, Proteus sp (1.3%), Klebsiella (4.2%), Staphylococcus aureus (5.4%) and coagulase negative Staphylococcus (2.4%). The strain of the E. coli isolated was however susceptible to most of the antibiotics tested against it. From the above study and observations, there is need for urgent awareness campaign and mass education to the teens and other adults on the danger of the disease and ways of preventing and controlling it, especially in the area of personal hygiene, proper ways of cleaning after defecation and self-control.
